Workshop Overview

A highly versatile form of expression, an artist book extends into creating a conceptual space, where words and imagery enhance each other, adding to the interpretation of the art form. We will create artist books that have content expressed in both imagery and words. Participants will learn basic printmaking techniques and structures for book making. We will explore sequence in visual and verbal narratives, creating the unique art form of an artist’s book.
